Lawyers for Mohamed al Fayed today launched an astonishing bid to force the Queen to give evidence in the Diana, Princess of Wales inquest.
They called for the monarch to be "directly approached" over conversations she allegedly had with former royal butler Paul Burrell.
Mr Burrell, who previously worked for the Princess, claimed after the collapse of his Old Bailey trial for theft that the monarch had once warned him of "powers at work in this country which we have no knowledge about".
Mohamed al Fayed has fought a long battle over the inquest of his son, Dodi, and Diana, Princess of Wales

How long is this inquest gonna go on? She died more than a decade ago.
Has it been that long already?
As I get older, the months just fall off the calendar.
The man needs to let it go. His son was stupid, his girlfried was oblivious, and they died in a horrible car accident that was the result of ignoring the recommendations of the security team they employed.
It never ceases to amaze me when ‘celebrities’ insist on going where the papparazzi are located, then complain when the same take pictures and pursue them endlessly.
The hotel they went to was staked out by the papparazzi. If they didn’t want ‘coverage’ why in the heck did they ‘go there’?
It wasn't the fault of the paparazzi that Diana and Fayed's driver was drunk as a skunk. As far as I am concerned, that makes this an open and shut case.
Only way I know it is she died about two weeks after I met my husband.
“It wasn’t the fault of the paparazzi that Diana and Fayed’s driver was drunk as a skunk. As far as I am concerned, that makes this an open and shut case.”
Yep. And from what I understand of the details, the driver wasn’t expecting to be required that particular evening, it was a spur of the moment decision by Fayd and Diana.
Damn shame it happened, but this ‘conspiracy’ nonsense is just that....nonsense. Fayd made a mistake that shouldn’t have cost anyone their lives, but unintended consequences came into play as they sometimes do, with horrific results.
Oh well it must be true then... < /sarc>.
If the queen said “powers at work in this country which we have no knowledge about” then what is there to learn?
“Bad marriage or not, if Diana had been home with her boys instead of whorin’ around she would likely be alive today.’
Hmmmm. She was divorced, so I don’t see it as ‘whoring around’. Too each their own.
When you hire a driver named Toonces, you’re just asking for trouble.
Thats cold....I like it.
It’s easy to see where “Dodi” got his presumption.
The man needs to let it go. There was no plot directed at his son.
I’m not a copnspiracy theorist, but I think they should call the Queen’s husband. He would be livid and those fireworks would be something to see. He’d present the ultimate display of how dare they? Don’t they know who I am?
While I’m not in favour of this going on and on, I think without question, something fishy went on. There is plenty of evidence to support this being the case, or perhaps a better way of putting it, would be to say there are plenty of questions that need to be answered.
I don’t believe alot of what burrel said, but the fact remains he was quite shockingly ‘let off’ on the say so of the queen. I don’t know if he’d even be in a position to tell such an extraordinary lie in the aftermath of such a gesture from the monarch.
If that was said, then it is pretty scary to say the least.
Well, it might have been MI-5, or MI-6, or even MI-7.
They’ll tell you that MI-7 was closed down long ago and no longer exists. But should we believe them?
